The Casetta in the Park in Dongo
The exclusive residence allows its guests to spend moments of pure relaxation, to enjoy the quiet and tranquility of nature. Our guests can enjoy wonderful sunsets when the Mesolcine Pre-Alps take on pink and violet luminescences while the lake and the woods are covered with semi-darkness.
Thanks to its strategic position, the Casetta allows you to spend a holiday with your family or friends in absolute serenity and harmony with the landscape.
The spacious attic, furnished with taste and elegance, has a very large living room with fireplace and windows on three sides, a large terrace overlooking the park and the mountains, three bedrooms, one double and two twin, with two bathrooms .
Only 20 minutes by hydrofoil from the famous Bellagio, 35 kilometers from the fascinating Como, 40 kilometers from Lugano and 90 km from Milan.
The Casetta nel Parco is an ancient stone building with roofs also made of stone, sod in the local dialect.
It is located within a park of over one hectare a hundred meters from the lake and, it seems, that in the past it was used as a depot of the lucie, the famous Lario boats so named in honor of the Manzoni character.
Today it is separated from the lake by the road, but originally it stood within a single property which, very large and important, included the shore of the lake to almost reach the foot of the mountains behind.
Purchased at the end of the 700th century by the engineer Giulio Rubini, deputy for over twenty years and three times minister at the turn of the century, the last owner of the Ironworks of Dongo founded in the sixteenth century and purchased by the Rubini at the end of the XNUMXth century, together with the Villa Rubini Redaelli, is connected to it by an underpass covered in white marble, designed by the architect Francesco Clerici.
